“Relaxing and refreshing”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Welcomed cheerfully on arrival by the owner, and shown around the gite and grounds. The gite is a well appointed, spacious open plan room containing sleeping, lounge and dining furniture and kitchen. There were several Sky TV UK channels available. The walk-in shower, toilet and sink room was adjoining the kitchen end of the room. The lack of a washing machine was not an issue as there was an inexpensive and easy to use launderette within easy walking distance (next to the suitably large supermarket)
The well kept garden was set up for relaxation. The pool was ideal, and the garden furniture allowed the wide variety of birds on the feeders to be watched comfortably. (The red squirrel didn't make an appearance while we were about).
Through the gate at the bottom of the garden are paths leading down to the river, where there was the opportunity to partake in a bit of fishing. The fishing wasn't simple, the river was accessible but being over 12 ft deep a rod length or two from the bank. I ended up with a few small dace each time I 'wet a line'. There was plenty of wildlife to watch in the meantime however, (Kingfisher, dragonflies etc.)
The town's facilities were all within easy walking distance, with bars and restaurants etc. in the centre. We had an excellent 'set menu' lunch in 'The Marmite' situated on the other side of the river bridge.
We spent most of our time onsite, and our hosts were friendly, helpful and approachable, with any minor problems being sorted immediately..
Any balanced reviews have negatives. Struggling to find any, the only ones I can muster, are the over sensitive smoke alarm, and the incorrect wifi code given to the owners by the provider. Both of these were 'in hand' to be sorted out as we left.
Overall, the hosts were good and the place was good.and we would return at some time in the future.
